Programatic return that says "this backup is finished."
Hello Symantec world!
Just got done meeting with one of our SQL DBAs. We are well on our way to refining certain automations involving Netbackup routines against prod database instances. At the end, we were left with a simple question:
What is the programatic return that tells the master server, "this backup is finished"?
The reason for being finished is irrelevant. It failed; It succeeded; It pranced amongst the flowers in a field of autumn gold. All not important.
Another way to phrase it:
What return could I extract programmatically to tell some other program somewhere else, "Hey, this backup has finished"?
I'm not looking for 'is it still running'. Nor am I looking for 'has it started'. I am simply looking for whatever variable or boolean or whatever that will tell me that, for whatever reason, it is done.
Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you so much in advance.
